07:42 AM ET 12.11 | Tick-tock. The Boise State football coaching search heated up Monday and could be near its conclusion. Arkansas State coach Bryan Harsin interviewed in Boise and Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter interviewed by phone Monday, a source told the Idaho Statesman. Falcons coach Mike Smith confirmed that Koetter spoke to Boise State when talking to reporters Monday. Koetter interviewed with Boise State Athletic Director Mark Coyle and will have a second interview with President Bob Kustra on Tuesday, the source said. It was not known with whom Harsin interviewed. Washington defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox also remains in the mix, sources said. But the Statesman has not been able to confirm his interview schedule.

and IIRC, Koetter was their HC prior to Hawkins.

I went to high school with Dirk. Nice guy. But he's had his bite at the apple. I would be shocked if they took a step backwards. What makes you think this time would be different?

Well if you mean did he call the statue of liberty play in the bowl game then yes.

Ha ha.....just looked at Harsins wiki page and its updated to show him as HC.

So, unless they want to change their system, I would think Harsin would be the man....he was successful under Petersen.

He already has a revolving door on HC office, and the HC's computer login name is permanently set as "headcoachrightnow"

Crazy. Current seniors on this roster at Arkansas State have had 4 different head-coaches

I have a buddy that's an ASU grad...I just texted him and his response was "Arkansas State = Gateway drug"
